Bought it to carry all of my go everywhere gear (Nexus7 tablet, iPhone 5, wallet)........didn't go as planned , can really only hold the tablet alone Or my phone and wallet. It looks like its going to explode with everything in it at once, so not really sure how a notebook would fit since my nexus is thinner. Which is kind of a bummer because all it needs is like another 1\4-1\2 inch of thickness and it would perfect, but honestly now I probably will never use it because of that. Unless there is someway to make it bigger I wasted $50. Otherwise its great craftsmanship.
I have seen this folio for the first time a few years ago and I came regularly to this site to admire it, but I have always known that it's too expensive and I just cannot afford it. But finally month ago I have earned enough money and decided to fulfill one of my greatest wishes.
I have chosen Tweed Yorkshire Pudding, which looked exactly like I would expected - combination of warm shades of brown and beige, and Condura Clay Binding which merged with tweed nicely.
I could not even sleep properly all 19 days it took the package to arrive across the ocean to Europe, but when I finally unpacked my folio, it was of the saddest days of my life.
While Condura Clay Binding looked exactly as on the display of my laptop, Tweed otherwise was much darker than displayed, making that combination look ridiculous. But what is even worse: Tweed Yorkshire Pudding was purple. PURPLE! No warm shades of brown and beige I have seen during creating my folio, which are so typical for the Yorkshire Pudding meal. But instead it was combination of beige, dark brown and purple. I guess that you in San Francisco probably add blueberries to your pudding and cook it much longer than we do in Europe.
On the other hand, I tried to put my journal and stuff inside and it fits really well, it is neither too big nor too small. Writing into the journal inside open folio is also very comfortable, no matter whether it lies on table or your knees.
It is just too bad that it looks so awfully purple that I cannot even take it to the public. All I could think about it now is throwing it to the garbage. I have not been so disappointed for years.

Fantastic idea, poorly designed. Bought it because my journal, cell and fountain pens need a convienent carrier away from my pockets. When compartments are full with cell, journal, and pens there is a noticable bulge and hard to close. Too many clever compartments that I can't use. Too tight of a fit. I even tried to close with a slimmer cell phone than my Blackberry. No luck. Maybe I'm too picky?
Called the 800# to ask if my product was faulty, they said first they heard of this problem. Offered to send me a return label/box and I haven't received anything yet and it has been almost two weeks. I'll put it to use as a journal and pen holder, my cell will need to stay in my pocket for now.

The color that arrived was not what it looked like on the website. It's darker and much less attractive.

I had purchased this to hold a pocket sized recording setup with a Livescribe digital note pen. They offer a Moleskine inspired notebook with their specialized dot-paper.
Sadly, the specs didn't match closely enough, and the notebook didn't fit. If it fits a Moleskine, the tolerances must be pretty tight.
No fault of Rickshaws. I love their products, but it just didn't work out for me as hoped.
